Nate Parham is a long time NBA fan whose newfound interest in women's basketball led him to managing SBN's Swish Appeal, which covers the WNBA and women's college basketball around the nation. In addition to contributing to Swish Appeal and Golden State of Mind, he has been a women's basketball contributor for the Capital One Cup and espnW.

Nate has covered the WNBA's Seattle Storm as well as the Seattle University Redhawks and Washington Huskies men's and women's basketball teams. Since returning to the Bay Area, he has wandered around covering things from NBA summer league to Pac-12 and WCC women's basketball.

As a Bay Area native, he is unfortunately cursed with a love for the Golden State Warriors, which is only partially offset by the resurgence of the San Francisco 49ers.
